2020 Submissions Open

Festivals thrive on an enormous amount of community goodwill and volunteers are an intrinsic part of their success. Volunteering includes ticket collection, directing festival-goers to venues and transporting artists. We’re also looking for people who have talent in managing events, people, logistics, finances and marketing.

We'd love to have you on board for our 2020 festival. You can register your interest here.

Are you an established or emerging writer? Do you have a new book on the way? Are you keen to host a masterclass or presentation? StoryFest will accept submissions for the 2020 program from 19 July until midnight 19 October 2019.

Submissions are being accepted for both the Schools Program and main weekend program.

StoryFest Inc hosted a fundraising event on Saturday 21 July 2018 at the historic Milton Theatre which sold out. The highlight of the evening was a very special 'in conversation' with Markus Zusak, one of Australia's most loved authors.
Don't worry if you missed out. You can hear the whole thing on the Writes4Women podcast
You'll find some wonderful photos from the night in our  Gallery.




StoryFest is a celebration of storytelling in all its forms - whether it be through prose, poetry or song. Join us for a weekend of events, workshops and dinners in some of the finest venues Milton, Mollymook and Ulladulla have to offer. 

Visitors to StoryFest can enjoy all the glorious south coast has to offer. Venues will showcase our beautiful beaches, spectacular wilderness and historic buildings. Foodies will be impressed by our sumptuous restaurants and providores.

Telling stories, be it through prose, poetry or song, is how we connect with each other, understand our past and contemplate our future
